THE NUTCRACKER !!
That's right for my internship project I got to help and work along side with the director and the manager putting on the famous ballet the Nutcracker. It was a great experience to learn the behind the scenes. I have been in lots of nutcrackers starting off as an angel and ending at getting to be in snow and even having a solo in the party scene as a doll. So I have went through the performing and rehearsing process many times before but never the behind the scenes of costumes, props, casting, music, and leading rehearsal. It is so much time and work. I have learned so much and I loved working with the children they are so cute and get so excited!
I have done everything that could be thought of for the show. I will defiantly use what I have learned in the future. Especially the parts where I worked with the youth and there families. I think having those experiences are the most important ones to have because I will now have a better understanding and also more confidence on working with parents and there children. I think that is the make or break to working with the youth because you want to build professional relationships in the field it makes for a better environment and a better work place.
